every Samsung phone using Android 10 and possibly others is now insecure

When you receive a call and after you hang up but before the lock screen appears just hit the display open apps button on the bottom right of the screen and you have a completely unlocked Samsung phone. This applies to EVERY samsung smartphone.

??? what do you mean by "completely unlocked" ?? If I'm in possession of my phone I have full control of any and all features regardless.

Samsung support have offered me a "So sorry and best of luck" reply. they won't even encalate my issue to someone who cares. Not impressed. Thanks for the support tho Shadowgate.

Most bypasses are through the above mentioned but taking a different route. While call is in place before hanging up you pull down the notification tray and enter through the settings key at top allowing access to the settings menu and making changes

Oh sorry, i should had added. I have found the phone, just repleat of my stored data and some contacts.  It's how I know what they did. I stormed the home I lost it in and yelled a lot and looked like I might make people unhappy. It then just appeared.

Re: every Samsung phone is now insecure

"display running apps" is only shown if the phone is already unlocked. when someone calls me I don't have a way into my phone from there. and how did you know that that is how they got in if your phone was stolen?

It possibly only applies to those using Android 10
